B. I can't say no to friends or family members if he or she asks for my help: Since I come from a culture where people help each other a lot without seeing benefit for themselves in it. I can’t say no to people because I feel it’s good to help and to be nice and helpful to them. Sometimes I do think they take me for granted. Since I usually go to pick up lunch from restaurants at work from my friends, when asked others have started in my group have saying no knowing that I am not going to deny it and will go anyway. C. I can't say "no" when my boss asks me to work overtime: I seem to can’t say no to my boss when he asks me to work overtime because I feel obligated for all the support , help and advices he has given me over the period of time since I’ve started working.
While the majority of readers might think this behavior deceitful and dishonest, many psychologists have demonstrated through experiments that this behavior can be extremely effective social strategy. People are being laid-off everyday. Even though the phenomenon is common, to be asked to pack belongings and go home is still acknowledged to be a shameful and depressing experience. People who are out of work take bulging briefcases, wear glorious suits and network in Starbucks everyday, because they are trying to maintain the spirit of having a job. They are suggesting to themselves that they have high social status, that they are confident, and that they are proud of themselves.
Being kind can make you as a person feel good. When you put other people down to make yourself look good you are only lying to yourself, everyone around you really knows the truth.

Being kind should become cool, it will not only make others feel good but it will make you feel good too.
Social norms are what keep a society running smoothly on a daily basis. But the question remains, what happens when a norm is broken? Cutting in line has been an unspoken law since kindergarten, so I wanted to see how grown men and women would react to being “cut”. I went into my friendly neighborhood Safeway on a Thursday night, and as usual the lines were ridiculous. I used to work at this particular store, so I spoke to all of the employees and the manager about my social experiment so that I wouldn’t get in too much trouble.
This strikes me as a fear of change. He feels he is viewed as an estate agent, and although he has aspirations of a managerial position, he believes that others may not feel the same. He knows he is more than capable of doing the job as he has stood in for the current manager when he has been on leave. I think he feels that he coped then because he always knew the current manager would be returning to correct any potential mistakes? I also think he believes that the other office staff were happy for him to cover, purely because it was a short term thing, and potentially they couldn’t be bothered with the additional workload.
It was really awesome that I can now deal with them properly because they let me express my thought as well as they do. Soon, my attitude will not be a problem anymore because I learned that being cooperative to someone who are superior, inferior to you was no big deal. While I was working, I am happy that I was able to gain new knowledge although it was far different on the lessons I have got from my school. Although during those days when my professors were teaching and discussing to us different things about our course, I really was not paying my full attention but I’m happy that the things I got during the times I listened

Working at Kmart had really taught me many thing, how to deal with customers at a professional level and as well how to operate a cashier. They also taught me how to run layaway too.

A real life example would be my girlfriend Summer who has worked at a restaurant since they opened. At the beginning she worked crazy hours because her work had asked her to. In fear of losing her new job because she didn’t want to be seen as not committed she agreed to the long hours. Working such long hours meant missing out on a lot of
They still looked up to her for advice because that’s their role model still and it doesn’t affect them. She made that mistake so why put greater limitations on role models if the mistakes don’t affect the achievements. Role models are looked up to for success not mistakes.
